So far the weather here has been gorgeous- we've had straight summer days, except for one (very welcome) day of rain. I capitalized on some down time when the pouring started and snuggled with Charlie on this incredibly comfy blanket by Nuzzieco. There's a lot to delight me about this one: sustainable, hand-knit, no animal... Continue Reading →

The Thrifty Six Go Back in Time!
When it comes to great shopping, for me there's no greater high than finding an impeccable, well curated vintage piece. The trick is to style it up with something a bit more recent or trendy in order for it to not end up looking 'costumey' if you will. Do it right- and you will be... Continue Reading →
